    A bit like comparing tennis with real tennis. He seems to debunk our sport on the basis that he was never any good at it and doesn't like orthopaedic handles. His understanding of the modern sport...

    I see what your saying. Still, I consider not winning a DE as underperformance and in no way shape or form should be rewarded.

    It would seem so. I've just had a look at the WS rankings for December. I can only assume this will get worse after New York results are input.

    Essentially someone has created a system that...

    Looks like a system designed for a small group of people to stand in a circle and pat each other on the back. Getting more like an exclusive club than a national sport every day.

    We should...

    CM is one very cool headed young lady. Came from behind after the break to win her 32 and 16 fight and nearly did it again in the 8. A class performance.

    If there are no boundaries, don't be surprised if people cross the line.

    The headline is likely to be "Man talks to woman". Whether that reflects badly on GB or not is one of personal perspective I guess.

    I've coached 14yr olds who are not yet ready for senior opens and I've coached 12 and 13 year olds who have won senior opens. The age rule is not the relevant consideration. Rather it is about the...

    The coach education system a coach has been through, or indeed their qualification, are both very poor indicators of the quality of coaching or indeed future potential as a top coach. My advice...

    In some ways I'm with Flyboy on this one. Without performance results, there must be systemic problems. And I don't think this has anything to do with the fencers, organisers or parents.

    I was...

    And I'm not sure about intelligence. This kid genuinely thinks I'm stupid.

    Most kids I know think it more likely a fat bloke will bring presents via a chimney this year, than a counter attack will be given against an attack.

    I had the following discussion with a 6 year old last night. I was moving backwards, he was moving forward, I hit him on the head and he hit me.

    Me: Whose hit is it?
    S: Mine

    Sorry, but no. The whole section from t.74 is about how to decide on priority. It uses the word priority, because without priority a ref would find it very difficult indeed to decide the hit. ...

    Depending on the timing it could be given to A, B or together. Clarity comes when the ref defines who the attacker is? Once we know who the attacker is, it's easy to start the phrasing. I'm...

    I think that was the only point I wanted to make, that it remains the attack regardless of the footwork if the "defender" is doing nothing to earn the right to make an attack. I got the impression...

    This is a tricky one for refs because I don' think it is as black and white as you are suggesting.

    As I understand it, right of way is not "lost" when a fencer stops. The rules are quite clear on...
